Lead Vocals and All Around Sass
Axman Extraordinaire aka Lead Guitar
(Nobody would know his first name if it wasn’t for social media) Vance has been attempting to play various musical instruments for way too long. His current group Honie XFacter has some other people in it that do other stuff. Vance should’ve stayed in college, but dropped out to chase the delusion of being a real musician without any theory or experience in the field. So now instead of working in a cubicle with a healthcare package, he physically strains himself daily to load into Baltimore’s smallest dive bars only to be ignored by drunken hipsters who get mad that he doesn’t know who Post Malone is. Vance is consistently battling severe depression and thoughts of suicide, but realizes that only the real rockstars can actually go through with it (see: “Kurt Cobain”). At the end of the day, he finds minuscule amounts of solace in his attempt to use satire to hide his real pain. Come ignore Vance this weekend at a bar you’ve never been to!
Soaring guitar licks and sweet backing vocals are the garnish to any great rock band. Michael Vance began playing the six-string thing at the ripe old age of 7 years old. Without any formal lessons or schooling in music, Vance brings an eclectic mix of blues, funk, rock, and country to any stage he plays. Despite his youth, he has been blessed to share time on amazing stages with incredible people from Jefferson Starship to the Baltimore Ravens. Vance has also been accredited to such accolades including Baltimore Readers Poll’s Best Band in Baltimore and Bridging the Music’s Battle of the Bands.
